What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2014, Angie Fisher. Joined as a curriculum coordinator in 2011, and was later promoted to assistant principal. Has responsibility for curriculum, day provision in school and residential provision. She comes from a commercial background and worked for many years in travel agencies with responsibility for training young recruits to the industry.
